The limited-run AMG G 63 "Grand Edition" has been released by Mercedes-Benz in India with an ex-showroom price of Rs 4 crore. However, there is a very important factor to note if you plan to get your hands on this ultra-rare luxury SUV. The 25 units of the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Grand Edition reserved for India will be allocated only to current Mercedes-Maybach, Mercedes-AMG, and S-Class owners. The G 63 Grand Edition's global manufacturing is restricted to a total of 1,000 units. According to Mercedes-Benz, the deliveries of the limited-edition SUV will commence in the first quarter of 2024. In terms of differences from the standard G 63, the Grand Edition has the AMG and Mercedes logos in a special Kalahari Gold Magno hue, establishing the SUV's direct connection to the original G model from 1979.
